The book was printed on fully waterproof paper, with a supporting screen printed sleeve, all based on the affect countries conflict has on human lives. The document was exhibited in water around an installation I had created, holding a tally to represent all of the 1,361 lives that have been lost so far in the Mediterranean, since January 2016.
